Not quite as enjoyable as the first in the series, but I appreciated seeing what life was like in this same situation in a different part of the country. ( )

The Last Survivors series continues with Book 2 -- The Dead and The Gone. An asteroid strikes the moon, knocking it closer to Earth. Devastating climate changes and natural disasters immediately strike, ending modern society and starting humanity's downward spiral towards possible extinction. Alex Morales lives in New York City with his family. One day they are a happy, large Puerto Rican family....and the next Alex finds himself trying to survive with his two younger sisters. Alone. In a city filled with death and chaos. Can they survive, or will they join millions of others in death?

While the actual disaster scenario is pretty much scientifically impossible, this series does realistically portray the impact of a large scale extinction level disaster. Alex and his sisters have to grow up quickly when they find themselves without parents in a city almost completely shut down in an instant. Alex has to learn to scavenge from dead bodies and vacant apartments in order to have food, medicine and basic necessities. Thousands of people are searching for missing loved ones, even searching through unidentified corpses laid out in Yankee Stadium. Dead bodies pile up, leading to illness. Starvation causes acts of violence. The city rapidly disintegrates into a very dangerous place. Alex and his sisters lean on their Catholic faith and the last remnants of hope, as the world falls apart around them.

The Last Survivors series is written for YA readers, so there is no graphic violence, sex or bad language. The subject matter, however, is very dark and I wouldn't recommend the series for kids under 13. It might be a bit too much for younger children. As an adult, the series is very thought provoking, making me wonder how my town and my own family would react to a similar large scale disaster. In modern society, we rely heavily on technology for communication, basic necessities and safety....what if all that was removed in an instant? What if life as as we know it was suddenly, and permanently, very different? Where would I turn for hope when things seem hopeless?

Just like book 1, this book is in diary form. The story is very well-written and interesting, yet disturbing. Excellent series so far!

I forgot how bleak this series is, and also: SO SAD. Anyway, this installment does a great job of portraying faith during the ending of the world (sort of). I loved the characters, and it's kind of a slow build harrowing read. I feel like you could give a kid [b: Robopocalypse|9634967|Robopocalypse (Robopocalypse, #1)|Daniel H. Wilson|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1327885891s/9634967.jpg|14247828] as a read-alike if only for the same sense of civilizations slowly falling apart. But Robopocalypse isn't quite as depressing, I think. ( )

The Dead and the Gone is the follow up to Susan Beth Pfeffer's follow up to Life As We Knew It. This book takes place in the same post-apocalyptic world as Life As We Knew It except that it's in New York City. Seventeen year old Alex Morales and his two younger sisters, Briana and Julie, are left to survive on their own as both of their parents go missing on the day that the asteroid hits the moon. Alex feels the pressure of having to fight to keep both of his sister's alive and safe. New York City becomes something of a wasteland - people are fighting for food, getting sick, and dying in the streets (from hunger, riots, suicide and the elements). As Alex and his sister go to school, they fight to get around rats that are eating the bodies on the streets.

This book was just as enthralling as Life As We Knew It. I couldn't bring myself to stop reading it once I started. Pfeffer makes it impossible not to identify and feel for the characters. The world she writes is very believable. Also, it doesn't seem like some distant future. It could be tomorrow or tonight and we could be in the same situation as her characters. I highly recommend both of these books. And, although they both take place after the same event, they involve different characters so you can read them in any order. ( )

This book actually is set in the same world as Life As We Knew It. Although we don't hear from Miranda, we have a new teen named Alex. Alex is living in New York City at the time of the Moon shifting. It follows him and his families struggles to survive the new life style. I love this book it is actually siting on my bookshelf. Its an easy read and very hooking for teens. ( )

Pfeffer subverts all our expectations of how redemption works in teenage fiction, as Alex learns to live, and have faith, in a world where radical unfairness is the norm.
